Melissa Dotts

Orthodontic Assistant
Making Smiles Since November 2020

Melissa was born in Boone, IA, then raised in Oshkosh, WI. She attended a dental assisting program through Fox Valley Technical College in Wisconsin, which jumpstarted her career in orthodontics. Upon graduating, she joined a practice as an orthodontic assistant and worked with them for about six years before deciding to relocate.

Melissa moved down to Georgia at the end of 2020 so she could experience some milder winter weather. She was excited to join the Tebo team after completing her move because of the fun, positive atmosphere within the office. She looks forward to making a positive impact on her patients here, helping them feel relaxed and comfortable while transforming their smiles.

In her spare time, Melissa enjoys studying the Bible, keeping in touch with her family through video calls, hiking, spending time in nature, and playing with her two rabbits, Harvey and Marge.

Joahna Malave

Orthodontic Administrative Coordinator
Making Smiles Since November 2020

Joahna was born in Pontiac, MI but was raised in Puerto Rico. She also spent some time in Maryland, where she attended and graduated from high school. In 2011, Joahna's family decided to relocate to South Georgia. Once settled down, she started working in the customer service industry, which helped her to elevate her skillset and develop a passion for serving others. Joahna has since started working in the dental industry, which has been a smooth transition for her as she utilizes her skills in customer service to provide an excellent experience for our patients and parents.

Working in the orthodontics department at Tebo has taught her so much about the dental field. As she learns more, Joahna is eager to grow as a professional by continuing to gain experience and knowledge within her department. In her spare time, Joahna enjoys spending time with her family, singing, participating in her church, and playing music.

Jessica considers the best and most rewarding part of her job to be the reaction patients have when they experience their new smiles at the end of their orthodontic treatment! When not assisting our patients, she enjoys relaxing and attending church with her husband and three children.

She currently serves our patients as an Orthodontic Administrative Coordinator, in which she assists with scheduling appointments as well as being the point of contact for any questions. Due to developing an interest in orthodontics, Lizbeth would eventually like to cross-train as an Orthodontic Assistant so she can work chairside in the clinical environment as well.
